Air Conditioning Maintenance? Now?

Monday, January 6th, 2020

outdoor-ac-unitsYes now! Well, maybe not right this second, but air conditioning maintenance during the winter or spring is a perfect because this is the time to think ahead.

Think about it this way, would you perform maintenance on your car while you’re driving it? Of course not!

Temperatures aren’t hot, humidity isn’t bad, and the basic fact of the matter is that you don’t need your air conditioner—yet.

So, whether you’re in the mood to lower your cooling bills when summer does arrive or feel better about having an AC system that’s ready for the heat, schedule routine maintenance early. Take it from the professionals, having AC maintenance in the late winter or early spring is always a good idea.

Monday, December 9th, 2019

indecisive

Furnaces and heat pumps both provide the same service. They heat your home. Some homeowners like to stop there and call it quits, but those homeowners either have excess money where they’d rather pay someone else to take care of the rest, or they’re paying for more repairs than they should. Many people in our area, however, want to make the most educated decision possible at the lowest cost—and for that, you’ll need some advice.

While furnaces and heat pumps do the same job, the way they do their job is incredibly different.

Signs It’s Time to Consider AC Replacement

Monday, June 24th, 2019

old-air-conditionerSummer is officially here! While it’s been unseasonably cool in recent months—save a real quick heat wave a couple of weeks ago—we will soon enough be using our air conditioners on a daily basis.

So, is yours up to the job of keeping you cool all summer long? If you’re doubtful, then now is the time to consider if you’d benefit from an air conditioner upgrade, rather than waiting for it to break down completely in the middle of summer (and therefore needing to suddenly replace it in the middle of a baking hot day).

We don’t want you to be without your air conditioner any longer than you need to be during the hottest time of the year. Read on for some signs that it is probably time to replace your AC, and give us a call to schedule installation.

Can Poor Indoor Air Quality Hurt Your Air Conditioner?

Monday, June 10th, 2019

technician-working-on-air-conditionerIt’s not poor indoor air quality in and of itself that causes damage to your air conditioner, but rather what causes the poor indoor air quality to begin with: dirt, dust, allergens, and debris.

We know you do your best to keep dust and dirt out of your home—a clean home is a happy home! But one thing most homeowners don’t think about is the debris that exists within their air ducts and other interior components of their air conditioner.

Just because your air conditioner’s ductwork and other components are hidden from view doesn’t mean you don’t need to worry about its cleanliness or overall condition. Air conditioners are often one of the biggest investments people make in their homes, and something as simple as dirt and debris can cost them way more than they even realize.

Monday, April 29th, 2019

technicians-hands-with-tools-on-top-of-outdoor-ac-unitIt’s easy to dismiss a recommendation given by an HVAC professional, especially for a service you don’t really need “right now.” Unless something is preventing you from using your air conditioner effectively—like a loss of cooling power—you could be really tempted to put off your air conditioning maintenance tune-up.
